    Why? Is a relaunch planned?

    That would be awesome, given the stink that has become the DMN's sports section (not the fault of the writers who work there, by the way, if any of them are reading this)

    would love to be involved with an employee-owned relaunch.

    That sports section was a who's-who of badasses....

    I know their old sports editor was the publisher at the Arlington Star-Telegram and is now one of the higher-ups in their online department.

    Not sure about the rest of the section since I don't live anywhere near Texas, but their Dallas Cowboys coverage online is pretty damn good.

    The DMN used to be one of the best sections in the nation, then they started slashing and burning and it is a shell of its former self. They also used to deliver all over Texas. Not any more.

    A book I have about the Dallas Morning News, "Fresh Ink," says Belo paid $55 million for the Times-Herald's building, presses and subscribers list. It doesn't say if the name was included.

    No idea about the name, but the late '80s were a good time to string high school football games in Dallas-Fort Worth. If you worked things the right way, you could score three checks from one game -- Star-Telegram, Morning News, Times Herald.

    I was covering h.s. sports for one of those three papers in the '80s---how were you able to swing three checks for one game? You must have been defrauding two of the companies each time, using pen names or whatever. While you're patting yourself on the back, know that it is not amusing. It's unethical.

    Go ahead and try to rationalize your way out of this one.

    TonyS---earlier you spoke of former DTH SE later to Arlington---I believe you are speaking of Mr. Hardee, right?
